The cookies are great, but the recipe is a little weak. Anyone who has made cookies before should be able to stumble through it, but I had to rewrite it so my kids could follow along. And why add the oats by hand? Do a half batch and let the mixer do the work. Watch out, these cookies can go from perfect to burnt in about a minute.
Made these this afternoon and they came out fantastic! Very easy to make too. I used my ice cream scoop to scoop the dough and ended up with exactly 60 cookies. I baked them for 11 minutes and let then cool for about 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. They came out nice and chewy. Thanks for the recipe I know I will be making these again soon.
It's pretty warm outside today to be heating the oven and baking a big batch of cookies, but I had an urge! Turns out it was worth it. This must be a very 'forgiving, mix and match' recipe as I traded out ingredients as to what was in my pantry and they came out 'veddy-veddy tasty indeed'! For starters, I halved the recipe (in case they were awful) I used Jif creamy HONEY peanut butter, about 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, a 1/2 cup BLEND of butterscotch chips, cherry flavored chips, and premium white choc chips! The first batch I made as written and the cookies were huge! Like 5-6" in diameter! They took 12 minutes in total. I thought they were a tad too big though, so I halved the amount of 'dough' in the ice cream scooper and continued on. Most reviewers are right. 10 minutes at this size is perfect! Then after they cool for about 10 more minutes...they are set just right. Addictive, tasty and a great snack cookie~also not alot of trouble either. :-)
I've been making this exact recipe for years. I was going to share the recipe but I see you already beat me to it! :) Its my absolute favorite cookie to eat and to make! My version is slightly different in the measurements of the ingredients and the method of mixing, but its the same. I found that if I press down slightly on the balls of dough after I place them on the sheet they come out better. I also like to refrigerate mine between batches. Awesome cookies!
